* Music/{{ABBA}} is still the most famous Swedish band, but there are many others. Sweden is the world's third largest exporter of music after the US and the UK, possibly because of the combination of assimilation of those countries' modern musical traditions and the easy access to free music instruction. Other Swedish bands/musicians include rock bands like Music/{{Europe}}, Music/TheHives and Music/TheCardigans, as well as pop groups like AceOfBase and TheSounds and singers like Neneh Cherry. Sweden is also home to many Metal bands (see below).

* Sweden is also known (along with its neighbours {{UsefulNotes/Norway}} and {{UsefulNotes/Finland}}) for its extensive contribution to the various forms of metal music... which of course is just more [[OverusedRunningGag unease and yelling]]. They don't usually use HeävyMëtal Ümlaut though, since å, ä and ö are used as proper letters. Examples of bands include Music/{{Hammerfall}}, Music/{{Sabaton}}, Music/AmonAmarth, Music/{{Therion}}, Music/{{Candlemass}}, Music/{{Bathory}}, Music/ArchEnemy, Music/{{Evergrey}}, Music/{{Ghost}}, {{Entombed}}, Music/{{Marduk}}, Music/{{Dragonland}}, Twilight Force, The Gothenburg Three (Music/DarkTranquillity, Music/InFlames, and Music/AtTheGates), and whatever ensemble Music/YngwieMalmsteen has [[IAmTheBand playing second fiddle to him]].

* Parodies of TheSeventhSeal (especially the scene where MaxVonSydow is playing ChessWithDeath) are not uncommon in American media, and they often include a fair attempt at talking actual Swedish.

* Creator/DolphLundgren is (in-)famous for appearing in second- and third-rate action movies, like ''Film/UniversalSoldier'' and ''Film/MastersOfTheUniverse'', though he's probably still most famous as Drago from ''RockyIV''. He also has a master's degree in chemical engineering and a second degree black belt in karate.

* Owing to its keen interest in music, Sweden has one of the most distinguished records at the Series/EurovisionSongContest, having won it six times (one behind Ireland), with such winners as ABBA (Brighton 1974), Per, Richard and Louis Herrey (Luxembourg 1984), Carola Häggkvist (Rome 1991), Charlotte Nilsson-Perelli (Jerusalem 1999), Loreen Talhaoui (Baku 2012) and Måns Zelmerlöw (Vienna 2015), with the latter two earning the second- and third-highest scores in the contest's history, respectively.

* However, that's not all Sweden does. Pippi Långstrump (you may know her better as Literature/PippiLongstocking) holds a Swedish passport and was created by Creator/AstridLindgren, a Swedish writer. Then of course you have the Swedish Chef on TheMuppetShow. So it goes both ways.
